Chic Charcoal

This vintage dresser was painted with Behr Cracked Pepper made into chalk paint and distressed.  I followed that up with a rubbed on/rubbed off layer of Minwax Dark Walnut Stain to give it an aged look.  The original hardware was simply cleaned and the drawers were lined with a trendy arrow fabric from Hobby Lobby.  It was finished off with three coats of General Finishes High Performance Top Coat Flat.
